Come and meet Alice and her friends in Easter Wonderland Adventure!

Blackburn BID is inviting you to meet Alice and her friends for an amazing Easter Wonderland Adventure!

On Saturday 2 April, families will be able to meet Alice and her friends including the Mad Hatter and the Queen of Hearts, as part of a live interactive trail between 10.30am and 4pm for a one-day only event.

Venues will include Mad Hatters Cupcakes & Tearooms on Town Hall St, Geek Retreat on Church St, Blackburn Market, The Mall, and Blackburn Cathedral.

Each of the characters will give visitors a fun interactive task to complete in exchange for receiving a word. 

By visiting each location and collecting all the words, you will be able to complete a phrase from ‘Alice in Wonderland’ by Lewis Carroll. Once you’ve competed the phrase on the trail map, show it at The Mall’s Ask Me Point to receive an Easter Egg treat.

And there’s more!  From 2-16 April, Blackburn businesses will be hosting an Easter Egg hunt around the town centre. 

The mischievous White Rabbit has hidden Easter Eggs around the town centre and Blackburn BID is asking visitors to help find each of the eggs, decorated by children from local primary schools and children’s activity groups. 

A trail map, available from the Ask Me Point in The Mall, contains questions about each egg. Once completed, all entries handed back at the information desk will go into a prize draw to win £100 in High Street Vouchers.

Catherine Price, Blackburn BID Manager, said: “We are looking forward to this egg-citing Easter activity that all the family can enjoy.

“Children will be able to meet their favourite characters from Alice in Wonderland on 2 April, and an egg hunt will run throughout the Easter holidays to provide a free, fun activity for families in Blackburn town centre.

“Blackburn town centre has a wealth of shops, cafes and leisure facilities for people to visit and enjoy.  We want activities like this to encourage people into the town centre and visit places they may not have been to before.”
